    Default teacup and saucer

    Hello,

    What do native speakers call a set including a teacup and a saucer? Are there any special terms? My bilingual dictionary says it's either

    single tea set
    mug and saucer set

    but the former might include a pot, for example; the problem with the latter is the word 'mug'.

    Thank you!

    If it's just a cup and saucer, it's "a cup and saucer".
